after "the wall street journal" reporter captured and killed in pakistan. richard has spent the better part of this past decade covering this nation's dual wars. and a few days back, we all gathered for the retirement of craig white, our nbc news chief photographer. craig has been our go-to guy for years. by the way, the video he shot of the firefight beneath an airport on baghdad road early in the invasion is the best photograph y in this era. that was his camera when david bloom roared across the desert and when richard engel came out with his combat unit just a few months back. craig says he's going sailing with his wife and he will, but i say we'll see craig again. >>> when we come back, a royal couple honored. >>> it's been just two months since the royal wedding that received global attention. and now will and kate are on their first official trip together as husband and wife. it's kate's first-ever trip to north america. which will bring them to los angeles a week from tomorrow. but they're beginning tonight in canada and the well behaved and reserved people of that great nation
in 2002 in pakistan and held at a secret prison in afghanistan known as the salt pit. hosed down and left in an unheated cell overnight, rahman died of hypothermia. neither prisoner had been singled out for special interrogation. they both apparently died of simple misuse or neglect. >> pelley: david, what are you hearing about the c.i.a.'s reaction to this today? >> reporter: well, this happens to be c.i.a. director leon panetta's last day on the job before he takes over as secretary of defense. none of this happened on his watch, but he is clearly pleased by the decision. he issued a statement, saying "we are now finally about to close this chapter in our agency's history." >> pelley: thank you, david. leon panetta will be taking over tomorrow for robert gates. today, president obama surprised the outgoing defense secretary with a going-away present: the medal of freedom, the nation's highest civilian award. gates was appointed by president george w. bush four and a half years ago and stayed on to help president obama manage the wars in iraq and afghanistan. we have done a number of sto

"rate." they are not paying 35%. they are paying 4%, 6%, 9%, and i am making up the difference. the irs is after a relative of mine who lost their job. they owe them $5,000. karzei and his brother have walked off with billions of dollars and our congress cannot seem to stop it. guest: well, there is a lot there. obviously, a lot of these countries, and it is very disappointing to see fraud and hopefully over time it will go down, i do not want to make any excuses for it because there are no excuses for that activity. a lot of these countries do not have the same developed a rule of law that we have over here. even in our country, there have been instances of fraud and bribery and things like that. there were huge problems in its new jersey and in the past. in illi
